Second opinion] I have a small growth / lump on the shaft of my penis. I was tested a while back and the results were negative. Been with my girlfriend's for a year, I thought it could be a wart, there's only one present and it's not colliflowers shaped and also I've read that the first signs are usually 1-3 months after first contact. But we've been together longer than that

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

I've only noticed it today, I'd say it's quite soft. If I stretch the skin it almost flattens out

There's no symptoms

Have the photos come through?

Without any symptoms like tingling, burning and/or sharp pain this could not be herpetic. Papillomatous warts are cauliflower like and have a verrocus appearance. This doesn't look like a wart nor is it behaving like one.

This can be a blocked follicle or a sebaceous gland duct. Can also be a fordyce spot.

I would suggest that if this does not go away on its own within 2 weeks, you should have this seen by your dermatologist. A dermatologist can apply a little local/topical anesthesia on it and freeze it off and send it for a biopsy. Nowadays, lasers can also be used to take care of such lesions.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen (rating me now does not close your question).

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
